Saipan Southern High School book club members and other island teens discuss their books of interest by writing their thoughts about the book choice of the month.
Chapter 3I can tell that life for Tree is not really easy. Somehow, he is always concerned about his father and the same goes for his father too. In this chapter, it’s funny how Mrs. Clitter really likes Tree’s grandpa but, in return, Grandpa doesn’t really like her. I think it’s because he’s tired of her. Also I can see that Tree’s grandpa is in the hospital so Tree is trying his best to be there for him. In addition, I can tell that he really enjoys being around his grandpa. On the other hand, Tree’s dad is also trying to be there for both of them. I know that Tree’s dad wants Tree to be okay with everything but he’s trying his best to make Tree happy and all. I just hope that Tree is willing to help out his father so that things can be better especially after his parent’s divorce.
So his grandfather is in the hospital and he is out of school and I think his teacher called and for me I think that is a very good thing because they might be very worried about him. I think that this chapter is very touching because he is in the hospital with his grandfather and he has been living with for quite a while and its sad to see him there just laying with a very deep wound in his leg. I think that he is just being very caring and love towards his grandfather and I think that is cool.
Chapter 3I think it would be cool to have a fun grandpa like Tree’s own. They have so much fun together and it seems to make Tree forget his own troubles while they’re with each other. His grandpa is knowledgeable too; at least he knows how to tinker with machines and make them even better even though it grosses people out. Tree needs to be grateful that he has someone he cares about and the same back, and I think his father needs to spend some free time together with Tree too. It sounds like Tree and his own dad doesn’t speak the same language when it comes to sports or much more like that. I hope things will develop soon because I want to see something good happen!
I think Tree gets attention from everyone because he’s just so big. Tree’s grandpa is at the VA and I think Tree really loves him. Tree’s grandpa is sort of like a trouble-maker in the hospital. He doesn’t seem to listen to the nurses and surprises them. I think Tree actually enjoys his grandpa doing this. I think the reason he loves his grandpa is because he understands what Tree is going through. He tries to give advices to him. I think his grandpa is cool because he teaches Tree many things. Tree’s life is so messed up right now and he doesn’t know what to do. I hope his grandpa would help him throughout the way. I think the character that seems real the most is Tree. I can relate Tree to a lot of my close friends because I have tons of friends whose parents are divorced.Some of them are okay, but some of them are really having a hard time. Because I have a lot of these friends, Tree feels like a close friend of mine too.
Tree's grandpa is such a cool guy. He teaches Tree many things. They have so much fun together and care with love each other. I think Tree seems to me real so far, because I've been seen couple of kids just like Tree, which their parents are divorced and things like that. But they are still bright and nice. Tree seems just like one of them I've seen before.
